Good progress

I've made good headway on my MarkIV tank model, I've started to add colour to it, and got the tracks to animate. The drawn/painted look is getting there. Here's a sneak peek at the work in progress.

I've been reading more on the fateful battle at Cambrai on Nov 20 1917 and found that there were more British tanks involved on that day, in that single battle, than there is in the whole of the modern tank regiment.

I also found a 35mm colour slide transparency that my father took, of me aged 1, sat on Gilbert's living room table, with him looking on. I'm so glad I still have it. That picture is the only image I know of that we're both in, and the fact that it's in colour is a wonderful bonus.
